Reviewed February 16, 2013

This hotel has very good service, clean and well organized. and it's close to the active places.
Few minutes walk to reach the see, and the city centre as well.
Just one thing that maybe should paid more attention to, is the breakfast: more variety of food should be available.

All in all, it's suitable for short visit to Barcelona.

A nice hotel well located. Rooms are rebuilt but soundproofing between room is a bit deficient. Breakfast is good. Located in the Poble Sec popular district, Hotel Parallel is close old city center (20 min walking) and the 57 bus will drive you directly to Barceloneta beach.

The first thing that hits you as you walk in to the hotel is the fact that it doesn't seem like a 2 star hotel. It can easily pass as a 3-4 star hotel. The location is absolutely perfect as it is a 5-10 minute cab ride from any of the tourist places. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious and the bathroom is bigger than one would expect in a 2 star hotel. The most convenient thing was that there was a 24 hour parking lot in front of the hotel (as we had rented a car for our stay). The staff was quite pleasant and would try and help you with all your needs. Would definitely recommend this to everyone who wants to stay on a budget but in a nice, clean and spacious accommodation in Barcelona.

I was very impressed with this place. I wasn't expecting much because it was a 2 star hotel, but it was in a great location. It was just short walk from everything. Rooms were clean and had everything we needed. Staff was helpful and friendly.

I stayed here when I went to see a band at Sala Apolo which is literally a 3 minute walk from this hotel (location location location!) - as my flight was delayed & I was running late I grabbed a cab from the airport (El Prat) and it only cost 20 euros which in the grand scheme of things isn't bad at all. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was new, modern and very clean! Everytime we went to use the elevators there was always one there open and waiting to be used which was a nice touch - I'm sure when it's very busy that doesn't happen but it caused us no end of entertainment! There's a great metal bar 5 mins away for anyone who is that way inclined (Hell Awaits - great night out!). Lots of places to eat nearby, overall we had a great stay and would definitely return.

Room Tip: 4th floor and upper floor are the new one, choose it there, don't take the room facing the main...
